And so it ends, our heroine finally knows peace.

It's been a hell of a ride and I loved every minute of it. It's been a huge pleasure revisiting these eps with you.

As for Gabby? Personally I think she adventured for a few more years then went back to Potidea to live with Sarah and Lila.
I agree with you on everything... (except who her father is! )

As much as various factions of the XWP fandom hate this ending, I really do see her "at peace" now which makes me happy... and its only the "end" for this karmic cycle. We know these two get together throughout history, which has proven MUCH fodder for the fanfiction writers.

Hurray FF writers!

And I agree with you on Gabrielle going back, eventually, to spend time with Lila and Sarah and become that famous Bard we know she should have been... before all her stories were burned in the ransacking of the Great Library of Alexandria.

Glad you enjoyed the revisit. Hell, I enjoyed the revisit when I finished the 134 eps in 4 weeks and realized I'd done it so fast that I MISSED so many themes.

And once again, I'd like to apologize to Rpb Tapert, Lucy Lawless, and Renee O'Connor for not even considering their show the first time around. What can I say?

Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima culpa.

Silly little things I remember after all these DVDs and commentaries...

After 6 years of acting opposite her, Lucy Lawless did not know what color Renee's eyes were...

... but her HUSBAND did! (Was that a director thing, he's used to lighting her or watching her in the dailies?)

That Rob Tapert, the horror movie producer was such a sentimental old sod, feeling "honored" to be able to direct the scene by the Fountain of Strength between Gabby and Xena.

That Renee was just as sentimental as Rob Tapert, when she seemed to relish the idea that he'd changed the ending of the finale so we never see Gabrielle without Xena, after they met again on the ship.

But even funnier, was that Renee... 3-4 months pregnant during this episode, had NO idea what would be happening to her just 5-6 months down the road.

(Boys... don't listen to this if you are the least bit squeemish. )

Re: Any Xena:WP fans on the boards?

I know it's sad but I kinda like the original ending where Gabby's alone on the boat, has more of a sense of truth to it

Re: Any Xena:WP fans on the boards?

^^I can see some sense in that... it is more real, but then again the reality is what Xena herself said...

“And to the place where I’ll always remain... your heart."

We incorporate the people, philosophies we follow inside ourselves and in that way we are "never" alone.
Liz Friedman, one of the producers/writers of the show said Hercules is the hero we all hope is "out there", somewhere.... whereas Xena is the hero we all hope is inside US... somewhere.

I like to think of Gabrielle as the Xena fandom... and as the series ends, we fans walk away with a little Xena in ourselves just as Gabrielle sails away with her in that wonderful heart.

Even Lucy lawless has spoken to this idea, when she was asked what she would do if she saw something unjust going on.

She said, if she saw someone abusing a child, she'd "...go from Zero to XENA in half a second!"

Imagine a world with 7 billion "redeemed" Xenas!

Re: Any Xena:WP fans on the boards?

Early last year I noticed the link to Mike's images was broken. After years of providing a wonderful resource, Mike's website was gone.

I didn't fret much for this thread, since I also used miroirdarc quite frequently. Alas, I noted last month that miroirdarc was also no longer linking.

Bummer.

Fortunately, when I watched a WFC youtube vid this afternoon, I noticed a website in the credits that led me to warriorprincessnerd.com (c'mon! Who can resist a name like that???) and their links page not only discussed the missing Mike's images, they gave a new link to it vis a vie the wayback machine.

http://web.archive.org/web/201303171...es-images.com/

Just as importantly, when I plugged mirroirdarc.com into said "machine", I found that treasure trove archived there as well.

http://web.archive.org/web/201304291...com/xwp/scaps/

Lucky for both you and I, the edit function no longer works after 24 hours so I won't have to crawl through the thread replacing links.

Why lucky for you? Because you get to crawl through these great sites and see all the screen captures/wall papers I didn't use the first time.

I have to admit, 3 years after my last post in this thread, Xena Warrior Princess still has a significant hold on my heart.

In fact, the only thing keeping my hopes up after Mulgrew canceled for my June Star Trek convention in Boston is the thought of seeing Ceasar/Cupid & oh yeah, he also played Dr. McCoy, replace her.

Getting back to the quintessential relationship found within XENA:Warrior Princess...

Piper and Alex's relationship (OitNB) is "one note" when compared to Xena and Gabrielle for mystery.

Jane Rizzoli & Maura Isles WISH their friendship could be as dependable as those 2 ancient Greeks.

Myka Bering and H.G. Wells in Warehouse 13 come the closest in brief moments ( season 2 & 3's finales) of sacrifice, but those were "one time things" for each character and then they went their separate ways.

Although BOTH women have grown since the pilot, Regina & Emma's relationship in OUaT is so cockeyed & their family dynamics are so screwed up that its more appropriate to speak of them as colleagues rather than co-parents or (gasp) friends.

I had hopes for Felicity and Sara becoming friends in Arrow, but its hard to be friends with an assassin who sleeps with the love of your life before running off with her girlfriend.

Hmmm.

Maybe innocent Felicity and deadly Sara are closer than I thought to Gabrielle and Xena, certainly closer than those Warehouse 13 characters.

What's that you say?

"Where's the new videos?"

How Intimate Strangers WOULD have ended if Lucy's horse didn't slip in Jay Leno's parking lot and break her pelvis.

I think I posted this in the Spartacus thread when it happened at the 2012 con.

I love how Lucy had to READ the script [3:16] to come up with an answer to Gabrielle's proposal. Of course, Lucy knew just what to adlib next to make the women in the room swoon.

Who owns Xena?



I would have included the 2014 Xena con winner in this roundup, but its theme is the "evolution of Gabrielle" and as far as I'm concerned the BEST version of THAT is still the old one.
